The move of Jackson Martinez to Atletico Madrid was one of the most talked about moves in the summer of 2015 as many people believed that he was going to become an important player for the Spanish giants; however, midway through the season, the Colombian striker seems to be surplus to requirement as the club is considering loaning his out to either Chelsea or Tottenham.
The 29-year old Colombian moved to Atletico Madrid for £29 million from FC Porto in the summer but he has not been able to find the form that helped him secure that move. He has only played 12 times for the Spanish club and he has netted only 3 times; he has gradually become unpopular with the fans. His frustration is gradually showing on the bench and Diego Simeone is seeking to loan him out in January.
Chelsea FC want to use him as a replacement for Diego Costa who has not only lost his scoring form, but has also lost the love of the fans. The other two strikers of Chelsea are also misfiring. Loic Remy has struggled to find his feet since joining Chelsea and Radamel Falcao is not the same powerful and goal-scoring striker that he used to be.
Head coach of Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino wants to find someone who will help him give Harry Kane the needed rest. His first choice, Alvaro Negredo, has been told by new Valencia manager, Gary Neville that he should stay; hence, he has turned to Jackson Martinez.
